'Soccer-style' Wales shirt blasted as expensive.

The new Wales rugby kit has been unveiled - but has already been criticised for its cost and skin-tight design.

At pounds 70, some supporters feel the replica jersey is too expensive, and others say the round neck makes it look like a football shirt.

But former Wales Union and League centre John Devereux said there were benefits to it being tighter, including making the shirts harder to grab hold of.

He said: 'There may be a few fans bulging out of it, and it takes more than a rugby shirt to win a match, but if it's a one per cent advantage for the players, it's worth it.'
